IV drips are a convenient way to give your body the nutrients it needs. They are also a great way to boost energy levels, improve immunity, help you recover faster and prevent illness.
An IV drip treatment should last around 30 minutes. It includes completing quick forms, a brief health assessment and the injection itself.
How Long Will I Feel the Effects of the IV Drip?
IV drips are a safe and effective way to deliver medications and fluids into your body. They have a long history of safety and use and have been refined over the last hundred years to be effective, convenient, and easy for patients to receive.
When you get an IV drip, a nurse will insert an intravenous cannula into your vein and administer the fluids to your bloodstream. This is a relatively painless procedure that can take 30 minutes to 45 minutes depending on the type of treatment you receive (IV Push or IV Drip).
Health of Cells
Vitamins, minerals and other nutrients will be infused directly into your bloodstream, bypassing your digestive system. This ensures a very high absorption rate, up to 90-100%. This helps to optimize your wellness and improve the health of your cells.
It also reduces waste as the vitamins and nutrients are absorbed quickly by your body, avoiding losses that occur when supplements are taken orally.
In addition to vitamins and nutrients, an IV drip may include a combination of other hydrating ingredients to help you feel better and perform at your best. Whether you’re trying to rehydrate after an intense workout or support your immune system, a personalized IV therapy session will be designed to meet your specific needs.
How Long Will I Need to Stay Hydrated After the IV Drip?
IV hydration is an effective way to replenish fluids and electrolytes lost due to illness, injury, surgery, or intense physical activity. It also helps prevent dehydration, improves performance, and boosts immunity.
This means you get a much higher absorption rate than drinking water or taking oral supplements.
In the short term, you should see an immediate effect from your IV treatment. However, it may take a few hours to feel the effects fully develop.
Some Temporary Swelling
During this time, you might notice some temporary swelling, which is normal for any type of infusion. If you experience this, don’t panic: it usually goes down within a few hours.
You’ll likely also notice an improvement in your immune system, energy levels and muscle tone. These benefits can last for a few days or more after your treatment.
When you come in for your IV treatment, we’ll assess your symptoms and goals and work with you to create a customized solution that will give you the boost you need to start feeling better. We’ll discuss the types of nutrients and fluids we recommend for you, so you can be sure to choose the best option for your specific needs.
How Long Will I Need to Stay Dehydrated After the IV Drip?
You should expect that it will take about 24 hours for your body to rehydrate itself. This is because it takes time for water to travel through your digestive system and reach your dehydrated cells.
During that time, you may feel some discomfort or pain at the injection site. However, these symptoms are typically manageable and will go away quickly after your IV is completed.
Drink Plenty of Fluids
In addition, you should also drink plenty of fluids to keep yourself hydrated throughout the day. This is especially important if you are participating in strenuous activity, exercising outdoors, or recovering from illness.
Many people get dehydrated due to the stress of their daily routines and hectic lifestyles. This can lead to fatigue, nausea, headaches, and even seizures.
To help restore your fluid balance, it’s recommended to drink at least eight 8-oz glasses of water per day. This will give you a healthy body and reduce the chances of dehydration in the future.
IV drips are now being used positively for many things, including delivering vitamins directly to the bloodstream, where they can be more efficiently absorbed and consumed. This is especially beneficial for people who are malnourished, have serious health conditions, or have had a surgery that makes them unable to consume solid food.
